After The Storm

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2
Prompt #351 - The Day After

"Today is September 12th. Twenty years after The Day After. We’re writing “The Day After” poems. You decide what day you are referencing and write that poem. “The Day After Tomorrow”, “The Day After I Lost My First Tooth”, “The Day After The Earth Stopped”… Let’s revisit that day. The day after."


Day after the storm
houses gone,
widespread floods,
homelessness, horrific heat.
People weep at loss,
ponder rebuilding.
How many times can they start
anew?  So
weary on
day after the storm.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
